Subject: RE: Folk songs about birdsong...?
In Minorrie/Twa Sisters the girls go down to the broom to hear the blackbird pipe its tune.
The night visiting song Are You Sleeping Maggie? the owls (howletts)make the young man feel eerie on his journey.
And there is the talking bird, the parrot, in The Outlandish Knight.
